In The Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming

Recommendation: Highly Recommended

Who lives in the tall, tall grass? All kinds of wonderful creatures do and if you watch and listen closely you will see and hear them too!

Positives: Kids will love the rhyme and rhythm in this book as well as the very unique, bold and colorful illustrations. It could also encourage kids to explore their own backyard and see what they find in their own tall, tall grass. This book reminds me a little of one of my favorite authors, Eric Carle, but is also very unique and original in its own right.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: Once again we able to show our children the wonders of the Creator through his magnificent creation. God's creative powers are so evident through the different creatures he created, the different sounds they make, and the different ways they move. We can never tire of the creation story from Genesis 1 and we can learn of God's character through his creation (Rom. 1:19-20).

Age Level: 2-7 years old
